I studied at Oxford University, the Guildhall School of Music&Drama and at the National Opera Studio.

I have always worked as a collaborative pianist alongside my solo work, whether it be with singers, solo instrumentalists or opera companies and choruses. My work has taken me around the world but I am happily based in London.

I have worked for the main opera companies in the UK as a coach and repetiteur, including the Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Opera North and in Germany for the houses in Nürnberg, Wiesbaden and Freiburg. My repertoire includes about 50 operas presently. I have accompanied countless auditions, examinations, masterclasses and recitals and am very much a "singer's pianist." I have made several appearances live on BBC Radio 3.

Choral work has included with the chorus of the Royal Opera House and the BBC Singers.

I also love the instrumental and chamber music repertory and have performed with members of the Allegri and Chilingirian string quartets.

My rates are negotiable depending on the task in hand (usually around £35 per hour) but I accompany auditions, rehearsals, examinations and recitals.

I have an excellently equipped studio in the heart of Fulham, London SW6 with superb grand piano. Luckily I am able to play most music at sight and learn new music at speed. This has stood me in good stead so far!
